    We are so sorry to hear that Charlene has passed and pray for John, David and all her family. It was always a pleasure to be around Charlene. She could sit and talk with you about anything and everything, and you could be sure you'd be laughing somewhere along the way. She was a bright star among us all and will be missed.
